Miami HurricanesSaturday, Oct. 20: Sun Life Stadium, Davie, Fla.
2011 record: 6-6 (3-5 ACC). Miami had trouble building any momentum during coach Al Golden's first season. They won consecutive games just once -- topping North Carolina and Georgia Tech in mid-October -- but finished the year at .500 overall. All six of the Hurricanes' losses, however, were by eight points or fewer.
Coach: Al Golden (6-6, second season)
Series record: 57th meeting, Miami leads 31-25.
Players to watch: Stephen Morris (QB, Jr.) will take over the starting job from Jacory Harris; Mike James (RB, Jr.) had eight total touchdowns last season; Denzel Perryman (LB, So.) had 69 tackles, 6.5 for a loss and forced two fumbles in 2011; Vaughn Telemaque (S, Sr.) had 59 tackles and an interception last season.
- Can FSU make it three in a row? Jimbo Fisher has yet to return Florida State to the lofty heights it reached in the 1980s and 90s, but if the first step in rebuilding the tradition is reclaiming the throne from the Seminoles' chief rivals, Fisher has been a rousing success. FSU has now toppled in-state rivals Florida and Miami in each of the past two seasons, and the Seminoles are likely to be heavily favored against the Hurricanes once again in 2012. Florida State hasn't beaten Miami three straight times since it took five in a row from 1995 through 1999.
